Specifics of blocking process at Tierra Nueva:

If someone objects using the downthumb, they will be asked to answer the 
following questions: (1) what agreed-upon community values are being served by 
stopping the proposal? (2) what group interest is not being served by moving 
forward (safety, liability, legality) (3) how does stopping this issue going 
forward serve the community? (4) what do you think will happen if this issue 
does forward?

For an objection to be deemed valid, 25% of those present would need to agree 
that the objection was principled, therefore valid.
